Victor Baloha: "We need no party brands"
MP Victor Baloha on his facebook once again explained the situation regarding the self-nomination of his team on the early election to the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine.
"I would like once again to respond to everyone who is concerned with the participation of our team in the early election to the Verkhovna Rada.
We decided to run for the Parliament as self-nominated cnadidates long before the party conventions. I personally registered in the CEC on September 9, and conventions were held on September 15. We need no party brands. We did not need them on the last election, when we won Yanukovych with his frauds and unprecedented bribery of voters," - the politician said.
Victor Baloha adds: "However, the president's party decided to support us. But given how Yuriy Lutsenko presented this support at the convention of the "Petro Poroshenko Bloc", we decided to reject it. Therefore, at the CEC we are registered as self-nominated candidates. Whether we will or will not become the MPs - it's up to the community of Transcarpathia to decide, not to politicians, not to experts and not to political rich kids, who changed professions and comfortably settled in the upper part of the party list, some even with families."
